    97 SLS wheel bearing hub assy replacement

    Can anyone tell me what is involved with replacing the wheel bearing hub assy on a 97 SLS? First of all, what comes with the bearing/hub assy? Is it just the bearing and the ABS pick-up stuff? or does it contain the spindle?
    Assuming it does not contain the spindle, will I need to completely remove the spindle assy from the car to press the old bearing/hub assy out and the new one in? Or can it be done without removal? I have replaced many wheel bearings before and have a press at home, but have never worked on this model before.
    Any tips to make the job easier would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Re: 97 SLS wheel bearing hub assy replacement

    I'ts hard to believe that no one here has changed a wheel bearing hub assembly on one of these before.....


    I did find out that the bearing / hub assembly is not part of the knuckle (spindle). Does anyone know if the bearing / hub assembly can be replaced without pulling the knuckle or half shaft?




    Thanks,
    Jeff
